About to pop...
I don't know exactly why I'm feeling (and it's only a feeling) that one or another of the national infections is going to need lancing soon, but I do. I have a naive confidence in facts eventually devouring lies - a silly faith, contradicted daily, but, fuck, I hold out hope.
It's not just falling poll numbers - it's the nervous rats - Martinez on Gitmo, for example. Or the incipient panic of Sensenbrenner in last week's PATRIOT Act hearings - do the confident commonly go into such snits? The Conyers hearing, pushed out of quarters but sufficiently well-attended to go into overtime - I thought Milbank had better judgment.
More later this weekend.
